Scholarships and Financial Aid
To encourage talented students to continue their education at Wayne State's School of Social Work, the school offers scholarships and financial aid. Private scholarships, loans, grants, fellowships and other forms of financial aid are available on a limited basis to students enrolled in the School of Social Work. BSW students with missing or remaining Wayne State University general education requirements are not eligible to receive school-based scholarships or financial aid.
For tips on how to tap into the scholarships and other financial aid, here are five documents you'll want to download and print.
